2. I'm done.

No child should go to school happy and healthy and come home with PTSD or in a body bag.

Fix it. I don't care how. It just needs to be fixed. Now.

3. Another day, another shooting.

This is so sadly common . And apparently there will never be a point when a sufficient number or kids have been shot and killed. It's almost as if there's a quota out there.

8. No, I have been watching the whole event on our local Atlanta TV news station.

Huffington Post is wrong. The only injury was the boy who was shot and he is OK. He was not fatally shot. I am now watching the news conference.

5. Apparently nobody's been killed.

That is the indication of several other news articles I've browsed. Two or three people in custody?

10. Metal detectors at Georgia school where student shot

ATLANTA A middle school where a 14-year-old boy was shot and wounded in the neck by a fellow student had metal detectors, and school officials were investigating how the shooter made it past them.

Police swarmed Price Middle School just south of downtown Thursday afternoon minutes after reports of the shooting. A crowd of anxious parents gathered in the streets, awaiting word on their children, and later many questioned why they were kept in the locked-down school for more than two hours before being dismissed.

Schools Superintendent Erroll Davis said he sympathized with the parents. He said emergency protocol was followed, but that school district officials would meet Friday to review their response.

Davis said the school of about 400 students does have metal detectors.

"The obvious question is: How did this get past a metal detector?" he asked, referring to the gun. "That's something we do not know yet."
